Default Wheel spacing

I know everyone has already asked this but my answer was not found after many hours of searching, I have a 1998 4dr blazer stock suspension, About to order a 2.5" RC suspension lift with a 2" body lift, I already have the 31" tires in the shed, my question is do I need wheel spacers to keep the tires from rubbing, also will it look stupid without the tires being off set, I really want to keep the factory wheel.

There is a 2.5 inch lift kit from Rough Country, and other companies makes a 5 and 6 inch lift kit for the ifs. And then performance accessories makes a good 2 inch body lift.

But for the price of the 5 or 6 inch ifs lift, you can do a solid axle swap, so that is something to think about.
